Portrait of the late Joseph Hickey, by Matthew Hickey. December 2019.
Oil on canvas
5 x 3
In the small hours of the second night of March 2015, Joe Hickey died. With the heaviest of hearts, this painting was started on April 2015 and completed in December 2019. I'm grateful for the certainty that he would have loved it, as he rests in richly deserved peace.
